Disarmament and exploitation have been especially separate acts finished through particular organizational entities created for these particular reasons. The umbrella plan below which the disarmament of the Luftwaffe used to be applied was once Operation Eclipse. Eclipse took over the place Overlord left off, Overlord having been the plan which supplied for the invasion of Europe as much as the defeat of the enemy, whereas Eclipse lined the disarmament and everlasting army neutralization of Nazi Germany. For American airmen tasked to take advantage of the aeronautical secrets and techniques of the 3rd Reich, Operation Lusty supplied the authority, course, and notion of operation. those teams, the disarmers and the exploiters,worked hand in glove, one feeding the opposite, and through doing so ensured every one other’s luck. even supposing the method because it spread out used to be something yet orderly, they succeeded of their respective initiatives past anyone’s expectancies.

On February I flew my first combat mission against Dresden. We were flying within sight of a B- formation which had a different target than ours. The B-s came under heavy attack by flak. In a matter of only a few minutes, nearly half of the B-s had fallen out of their formation—some severely damaged, struggling to regain contact with the main body. Others spun away into the mist or exploded in a bright flash. Parachutes appeared on the horizon, but not enough to account for all the flight crews whose planes had been hit and were going down.
The Me- which shot down Charlie Johnson’s B- over Hamburg on the afternoon of March , , with a salvo of twenty-four mm RLM rockets belonged to JG . The st Air Division lost three B-s to the German jets that March day over Hamburg, an insignificant number for a force of over three hundred bombers. But men like General Spaatz, the experienced and farsighted commander of the United States Strategic Air Forces in Europe, saw the Me- and its futuristic rocket armament for what it truly represented—not the last gasp of a nearly defeated tyrant, but the tools of wars yet to come.
Even though the British airplane was not as good as the Me-, it became obvious to us that if the German pilot knew what he was doing, you were dead meat. I learned to love the P-; it was a tough little airplane. I once flew one through the trees and made it home. Gaby Gabreski tried the same thing with a P- and ended up in Stalag Luft I along with his buddy Hub Zemke. When Stalag Luft I was liberated toward the end of April , they brought all the POWs from Barth to Camp Lucky Strike, near Le Havre.
